The company where I'm working right now gives us Martin Luther King Day as a holiday, so I am home today. What makes this even nicer is that:
- the Bruins traditionally play a matinee on MLK Day, so I'll get to watch that (hopefully this ends up being a nice thing);
- the only benefit I get there, as a temp, is paid holidays (no vacation, no health insurance, no nothing else), so I will actually get paid for a day of sleeping in and lazing about, with a few chores; and
- I'm expecting this job to end any time, have been for a week or two now, so it's an added bonus that I get it at all.
On thing that has me nervous is the storm they're forecasting for tomorrow. At this point, they're calling it a "wintry mix", which means it could be rain, snow, or a mix of both with ice. Yuck! Would you send nice, warm, rainy thoughts my way? Because I am not ready to shovel again yet.
Now, I want to share a few things that have caught my eye lately. Something here for everyone: if you don't like the first item, keep looking!
An amazing and entertaining video of a little French girl telling all about what happens in Winnie the Pooh. She has some imagination; I'm pretty familiar with WtP, and don't remember hippos or monkeys. Something about how into the whole story she is really made me smile.
Next, I can't imagine arranging my books this way ... but isn't it strangely beautiful? More gorgeous bookshelf photos here.
Absolutely amazing video of a year's photos in two minutes. Watch the seasons flash past.
The seasons really do go by in a flash, don't they?
